Over 100 SPE students took part in February/March, 2020, Pet Responsibility lessons. Speuter Stories were submitted for the Speuter Story Contest and Clinic bags for The Spay and Neuter Veterinary Clinic of the Sandhills in Vass were decorated with artwork and animal advocacy messages. Unfortunately, because of Covid-19 prevention rules at that time, Moore County Schools’ classes and the Pet Responsibility Program were cancelled.
However, in May, when The Spay and Neuter Clinic opened again, SPE Speuter Story Contest winners were announced: Rebekah, Clara, Cameron and Alicia all submitted winning entries. Rebekah donated her free spay or neuter voucher to a SPE classmate, so Mary’s dog could be neutered. The pets to be fixed to prevent unwanted litters are BeeBee, Jolene and Ceaser – all young dogs.
Art awards were given to four students for showing creativity and imagination in designing bags that will be given to The Spay and Neuter Veterinary Clinic of the Sandhills to hand out medications to owners of pets that have just been fixed. The students who won Star Artist Award Certificates were Lincoln, Clara, Lila, and Alanna.
SPE students are now prepared to be responsible with their own pets, to teach others about pet responsibility and to always advocate for animals. They are excited about their new roles as Animal Advocates!
